I may later change the name to Holo Wreck, but for now it is 1v1 Me M8.

 

 
 
I'm making this for a gamemode called MLGmod, or pretty much any sort of deathmatch map.  I COULD, after finishing the map, work on it more and expand it to be used for Trouble In Terrorist Town.
 
The theme is an industrial-esque structure in the middle of a snowy desert that is doing research and possibly mining.  On top of this, it is all in a virtual reality simulation.  The basis of this map is the simulation is malfunctioning (hence the waterfall and giant can and soon-to-be-added addition), malfunctioning to the point that it is breaking reality.
 
I'll be hollowing out the two largest "blocks" for use, as well as adding a sort of housing setup and small buildings around the main area.
 
I haven't added it yet, but I am adding a purple-ish grid where snow shouldn't be to help build on this VR malfunction, as well as add a doorway that opens out into where you truly are (this will be broken and closed off in the Deathmatch version, but I will most likely open it up and add on to it in the TTT version).

Now that that is out of the way:  I'm sure I know you know the lighting sucks right now and maybe the lighting/fog is still off.  Feedback would be nice, and to put it into perspective: This map isn't going to make 100 percent sense, I am going for an eerie tone, and I am also trying to find a nice light balance so it isn't too dark, but it isn't too bright either.

 

The final map will have plenty of secondary light sources to illuminate the central areas of the map (just for the record, I used toolgun-spawned lights in the interior images to simply show off what I had done inside instead of using the flashlight).  There will be light sources outside as well (such as what you see under the platform in the first few images.

 

Also, renamed the map to Holo Wreck.  It seems more appropriate with what I am going for.

 

EDIT: I tweaked the environmental lighting to be brighter and a much less red tone.  I'll show it in the next batch of screenshots when I get around to it.

I am rather happy with how the lighting turned out so far.  I decided early that I wanted the interior blue lighting to contrast to the outside red lighting.

The yellow lighting is for areas outside, but underneath the structure (as seen in the last few screenshots).

Lighting looks excellent. Only uncertain about the level design (shape) and scenery now.

Yeah, I love the lighting with the fog.

 

Only concern is a rather odd combination of red and green, but I'd have to see it ingame.

It is actually red environmental lighting and blue internal lighting.  Any lighting that is going to be under the structure (but outside) will be yellow.

 

So far it looks good to me ingame, but I can tweak it later once people get a chance to play it.

Another update, just so you know I'm not dead or inactive or anything (I have a paying job now, so progress will be slower).

 

This isn't too much of an update, but it does build upon how the level will work and the flow of it.

 

http://steamcommunit...s/?id=302345259

http://steamcommunit...s/?id=302345286

 

The cables (while look nice) also provide obstacles (what the cables are attached to) for players.  Anyone wanting to run along those areas will be slowed down and be a better target, a trade-off of being in an area that is somewhat easy to not notice a player at.  The other side of the building in the first image will be left alone, mainly because a large ramp/chute will go there that will block off the majority of the middle of the ledge.

 

http://steamcommunit...s/?id=302345297

 

It's got rails now, and invisible brushes over the rope sections so you don't clip right through the rope (the brushes are the same width as the rope, and can be shot through).

 

http://steamcommunit...s/?id=302345315

 

The fallen rail is a static_prop with an invisible brush.  You can use it as a ramp to get atop the generator and as incline-cover (you can back up to conceal yourself again).  You can also use this to just run right over and surprise an enemy who isn't expecting it.

 

http://steamcommunit...s/?id=302345336

 

The right side (the busted rail) is a prop that can't be physically bumped into.  This is the tight pathway that you can use to escape from a gunfight, or get out onto the ledges.

The left side (the leaning section of rail) will break off (the rail itself is not able to be bumped into, it breaks via a trigger you touch).  This leads to the more open, exposed ledge.  Also a good way to escape a gunfight, as well as surprising players around the corner on the ground.

 

http://steamcommunit...s/?id=302345359

 

The props I used as room supports have terrible physboxes, so I made them non-collidable and used invisible metal brushes as a good workaround for the four corners they have.  You can fire right through the middle and throw things through them, but the corners are 2x2 brushes that will block physics/players/bullets.

 

EDIT: If you are going to post here, don't do it just to spam stupid MLG-related stuff that doesn't help to critique/provide feedback.

UPDATE:  See for yourself.

 

https://dl.dropboxus...lo_wreck_04.bsp

 

Things I already know:  It does not have boundaries, so you can run off the edge of the playable area.  The map itself is unfinished.  It isn't as optimized as I am going to have it.

 

Keep in mind that this is the DEATHMATCH version of the map.  Not TTT.

I alpha painted the snow (finally) for areas where there should be a lack of snow.  I am working on the two ramps (both use conveyors, one is an actual conveyor belt, the other is a slide/chute and pushes you down it to simulate it being slick).  Also there are two crate piles to allow access on top of the control room as well as a shortcut to the higher platform (instead of using the stairs).

 

Oh, and trees.  Gotta have those sprouting from the red stuff (that I plan to include in various places).

Update (again).

 

I pushed myself to finally get that final ramp transition done.  I think it came out better than I thought.

On top of that, I added a new source of light to the center of the map to shine on the top portions of the structure, essentially highlighting them.

Oh, I also added a red ent_sun to accentuate the environmental lighting, naturally.

"Show, why are the utility poles like that?"  Because shut up.  (really it is just eye-candy as well as a very narrow path you can tread (the wooden utility poles))

"Showwwwww, that isn't realistic."  Yup.

 

The displacements you see under the two ramps (final image) is on purpose, of course.  I'm going to be putting more stuff around like that later.  For now, I think I'm finally done with the middle of the map and will progress to making much smaller, outer buildings.

I'm going to put up those combine force-fields around the playable area.  As for the 3D skybox I will be extending the terrain as if going up into mountains and then past that have floating chunks of ground.

I made that uphill stream that I will extend into the 3D skybox later.  Oh, and there will be more Dorito trees.

As for the seam you may see (it is a seam between an ice displacement and a snow/ice blend displacement) I will be covering it one way or another with some propwork or something.
